If you want to hang a picture or collage from a wall, you can buy purpose-built wall picture frames, however most manufacturers now make dual-purpose frames so you have the choice of either sitting it freestanding on a desk or table, or suspending it from on high.

But what is the best way of hanging a picture frame on the wall? Here are a few tips to help you get it right:

Wall Picture Frames - rules to live by

Choose the right position for your collage or frame – think about where someone viewing the picture will be standing and where their eye-level will be. If you are tall, bear in mind that not everybody is as vertically-gifted as you are so perhaps try hanging the frame slightly lower than your line of vision; likewise short people should consider a spot a little higher up the wall.

If you are hanging the frame above a staircase or in a room with a very high ceiling, try positioning it a little higher than you would on a regular wall.

On regular walls, standard picture hangers should be sufficient to hold the frame in place – one hanger should be enough (unless the item is very heavy) and will enable you to hang your frame straighter than you could nailing two hangers into the back.

Where hard walls are concerned, for example, stone, concrete, brick or tiles, use some plastic, self-adhesive or hard wall hangers, or some foam mounting tape to secure your work.

Always check how evenness of your work with a spirit-level.
